Purchase Page type lets you sell a variety of items directly within your free or paid app, including premium content, virtual goods, and subscriptions using the Apple In-App Purchase or Google Play Store In-App Billing. 


How to add and configure this page type:



1. In order to add a new Purchase page to your app access its Dashboard. Go to Edit Pages menu then click the "+" (Add New Page) button.

From the list of the page types available select the Purchase one and click the "NEXT" button.



In the next step you'll need to add a name for this page and click the "Create " button. Once the page is added, you are able to proceed with editing it.


2. Configure this page by clicking on the "Edit" button.






3. Configure the Purchase page with your In-App Purchase/In-App Billing product.



                     3.1 Choose your  In-App Purchase/In-App Billing product type (same as on iTunes/Google Play Store Developers) - Consumable,  Non-Consumable, Auto-renewable or Free subscription.

Note: Auto-renewable and Free subscriptions types are available ONLY for In-App Purchase (Apple iTunes products)


                     3.ID of the In-App Purchase/In-App Billing product created on iTunes Connect/Google Play Store Developers (tutorial available at http://seattleclouds.com/IAP ) .
                                    In-App Purchase/In-App Billing ID example: com.myinappurchase.myappname

                     3.Page (or URL) to open if transaction successful. Choose an app Page ID from the drop-down or add your URL.


All fields are REQUIRED.



4. PRESS SAVE. 



*5. If you use a Purchase page type for Apple In-App Purchase you need to add in your app a "Restore Purchase" option by using the restore custom URL scheme.


<a href="purchase://restore">R​estore your Purchase</a> 

An example how you can use this URL scheme in your app you can find in our Membership Areas template  tab 2 (Restore) 



** You should add only one Restore button per app.



**NOTE: You can test the Purchase page type ONLY in an Ad-Hoc or App Store/Play Store build using a SandBox account.

*6. For Auto-renewable or Free subscriptions types you'll need to add the IAP Shared Secret. (Application Settings → Platform Specific Options)

Hi Vadim,

Will a app by Seattlecloud be able to support in app purchases for customised shopping vouchers codes? With the unique codes sent to user via a pop up message after purchase?
Hope you can help share if that is possible.

Thanks.

Christophe,
it is possible to have user receive a popup message after purchase. 
For one time services consumable IAP products are used, that is user pays every time to access content. Note that the min price for an IAP product is $0.99.
Please open a support ticket to have the issue investigated in detail.

Vadim,

Do my products that I am selling have to be on a website?? For the REDIRECT URL??

With Google I can just use the Google Checkout and my product is purchased DIRECTLY from the app.

Can it be purchased directly from the app with In App Purchases via Apple??

Hello,

1) Does it work for Android aswell or it's just for Iphone?
2) Does it work with Paypal?
3) Could you explain a little bit point "5"?  (5) External URL to request to notify about transaction (optional): link to an external URL to a handler emailing to the user a purchase confirmation message, etc.)

Thanks
Ronaldo

Hello Ronaldo,


1) The In App Purchase is currently available for iOS only.

2) No. It works only with iTunes Connect and App Store. The In App Purchase is a system for making purchases created by Apple. You can use the Shopping Cart page type for Paypal or Order Page for Credit Card.

3) You can create a handler on your server(website) that will inform the users about the transactions made. This is an optional field.

best regards,
Victor,
SC Team.

Is it possible to create an app with limited options and with adds, and then give users and option of in-app purchase, so they can get rid of the ads, and enable full list of options in the app?


For example, some pages would not be accessible until in-app purchase is made, and then they would be unlocked.


Thanks

Hello, Janko

You can not disable ads using In-App Purchases. However you can "sell" features and pages using In-App Purchases in your app.

For more informations please feel free to contact us via a support ticket.

Best regards,
Aurel

So wait, are you saying I don't have to use IAP to sell a product in my IOS app? Can I use Paypal directly. I am building an app that will allow people to purchase audiobooks. Can I do this without IAP?
Yes, technically you can sell your audiobooks using PayPal. However, I'm not sure if Apple will allow you to sell digital content using a third party purchase system like PayPal.
